: : And from Capitalist quarters we hear the echo of silence.....

: Would you expect 'us' to rush to defend any organisations members outpourings...

In this case, the "member" was the founder of McDonalds...

...without regard to their content?

The content being:

: 'We cannot trust some people who are noncomformists.
: We will make conformists out of them in a hurry...
: The organisation cannot trust the individual; the individual
: must trust the organization....'

Sounds kind of Stalinist to me...but what do I know. Certainly not a capitalist sort of thing to say, right Gee?

: Private property, as such, doesnt require someone to hero worship McDonalds or any other company.

Hero worship is often "required" when obedience to a particular ideology or practice is either desired or threatened. Covers a lot of range - from patriotism to corporate "heros" in defense of private property. (And yes...it exists as well on the Left)


Then would you like to comment on the "content" as you put it of:
